Jubilee Party has dismissed reports that the party rejected Anne Ngirita saying “UDA Member Coming Back Home Is Welcome.”
Jubilee Party secretary-general Raphael Tuju has didn’t reject Anne Ngirita, who was over the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.
Tuju said that all members who had moved to the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party are welcome back to their home, Jubilee.
Tuju dismissed claims that the party’s headquarters had blocked Ngirita’s move, saying the rumours were baseless and unfounded.
“Every UDA member coming back home is most welcome,” Tuju said.
Ngirita, who was associated with the UDA, disclosed she had changed her mind and will now vie for the Nakuru woman representative seat on a Jubilee ticket.
Speaking to journalists at the Jubilee Party Nakuru branch offices on Tuesday, February 15, Ngirita said she had joined UDA out of peer pressure and made a u-turn after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s call for unity.
The Jubilee party regional director said Ngirita was asked to seek clearance with the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission, DCI, and KRA before being allowed to join the party.
